into the institutional arena in terms of forces stationed here in the united states as it would relate to defense support to civil authorities. i think that's primarily -- this is not a primary mission for us. it's something that we do pay attention to, of course, as we deploy overseas. not necessarily forces we have here in the states. we do understand immediate response, rolling out the gate to help our neighbors in an immediate nature, but i think not so much in terms of mobilization and deploying inside our country. so, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the event that this is a requirement inside the u.s. >> thank you. this morning secretary schultz asked one of the panels that was involved in communications and command and control about in this age of information, real-time information, how you're hit with a sea of information and how do you deal with that. something as senior leaders all of you have dealt with. and i believe admiral zukunft used th

court took has to do with the defense of marriage act signed by bill clinton shamefully in 1996, which defines marriage under federal law as one man/one woman. but since then, there has been an amazing turnaround in public attitude and public acceptance of same-sex marriage. remember just a few years ago, there were, like 10 or 11 constitutional amendments up in the same year inch 10 or 11 states put on there by right-wingers who were using that as a way of deriving conservative -- driving conservatives to the polls. it was when george bush first ran, they could get the him elected overall gore or whatever. but did he have a huge success for the same-sachsey -- anti-same-sex marriage people. there are nine states which allow recognized same-sex marriage, massachusetts, iowa, vermont, new york, connecticut, new hampshire. i think hawaii is on that list too. one, two, three, four, five. and the district of columbia plus the state of this year just added, maryland and washington plus, remember the president of the united states himself, who used
discriminate against. i can't treat you differently because you're a man versus a woman. well, this defense of marriage act is exactly what the defense of marriage act does. it denies same-sex marriage couples the rights for tax benefits, federal health benefits and the like. so if you're married to a man, you dent get the same right ifs you're a woman married to a man. that is gender discrimination, in my view, not sexual preference. >> and you've argued in front of the supreme court. >> i have. >> you said in 1990? >> 1990. >> nerve-racking? >> very nerve-racking. these issues are very important. the justices are very prepared. they're very intelligent. and there's a lot at stake. so this is going to be a very interesting argument. now we can actually listen to them online. >> having argued in front of the supreme court, how do you think they're going to rule? >> well, i think we have a fairly conservative court. but it's kind of divided 50/50. it's going to be a very close call. however, looking at the case precedent in the past and looking at what i think they have to do with this law,

to consider overturning both the federal defense of marriage act and state bans on gay marriage next year. nine states and the district of columbia have already legalized same sex marriage, most recently maryland, maine and washington. a recent gallup poll shows a majority of americans for the first time support gay marriage. back in 1996, just a quarter of the country did. today, 53% as you see support it. 46% are opposed. let me bring in executive director of log cabin republicans, r. clark cooper, and democratic strategist and former dnc advisor to the obama '08 campaign, jamal simmons. gentlemen, good morning. >> good morning. >> opposition to gay marriage has obviously softened, even among conservatives. here's what george will had to say about the issue. >> this decision by the supreme court came 31 days after an election day in which three states for the first time endorsed same sex marriage. they could see it's now safe to look at this because there is something like an emerging consensus. quite riliterally, the oppositi to gay marriage is dying. >> here's what he's talking about.
. justices will also hear a related case concerning the defense of marriage act. kron 4's dan kerman takes a look at what this all means. >> i now declare you spouses for life. >> same-sex couples will have to wait a little bit longer to tie the knot in california at the u.s. supreme court to review proposition 8, the voters approved a ban on same-sex marriage means legal briefs will be filed in the case will be argued early next year. >> is one simple question does that constitute permit same-sex marriage port equal protection for everyone? for equal protection or not. >> uc hastings law professor laurie hastings saying that they are reviewing proposition 8 and the defense of act is significant because of wor--rory.. >> they are granting to cases and alone for every possible question. >> many people watching supreme court that kennedy could be the vote deciding factor but roberts could be the pivotal vote. >> chief justice's tend to look for history. where will their position be? robert proved this in the health- care he was the deciding vote that helped sell the mandate. and he will go d
syria is loading chemical weapons on to aircraft, but defense secretary panetta said it appears the embattled assad regime is preparing to do just that. >> there is no question that we remain very concerned, very concerned that as the opposition advances, in particular on damascus, that the regime might very well consider the use of chemical weapons. >> reporter: monitoring of syrian basis like this one has pekd up evidence engineers have loaded the chemicals which combine to form the deadly nerve agent sarin, into bombs that could be dropped airplanes. satellites have seen trucks moving among want bunkers where the weapons and agents are believed to be stored. u.s. officials say the evidence is strong but circumstantial, not definitive. but that, combined with fighting ifighting in the suburbs of damascus, has led to fears of what the assad regime might do. we asked jeffrey white, a former analyst for the defense intelligence agency, what would happen if the rebels cut off damascus? >> it's the end of the regime. the regime can hang on for a while because it has troops in the c
the federal defense of marriage act, or d doma, and another involving california's proposition 8, banning same-sex marriages in that state. for analysis into these historic cases, what's going to be a historic hearing, i want to bring in kinji yoshityoshito, professor of constitutional law at new york city. great to see you. >> good to see you. >> put prop 8 aside for a second. do you believe that the supreme court will strike down doma. this is what what you've said. walk me through your thinking on that one. >> y bet. so doma is a really narrow challenge insofar as what the statute does is it says for federal purposes marriages are defined between one man and one woman. so i think it might be best to clarify this by example. so you take edie windsor, a plaintiff coming out of new york who's going to be the plaintiff in this case. she was with another woman for 40 years. they got married in 2007. when her partner passed away, her wife passed away, for state purposes, in the eyes of new york state, she was next of kin. so her remains were released to edie. but for federal purposes, they were c

in chicago, defense attorneys call the city "the false confession capital of the united states." chicago has twice as many documented false confession cases as any city in the country. one reason may be the way police go about questioning suspects, and "60 minutes" has learned the chicago police department is now the subject of a justice department investigation into its interrogation practices. two cases we examined involve several teenage boys who were arrested and, they say, forced or tricked into confessing to violent crimes they never committed. each spent nearly half their lives in prison. they are free now, and told us their story together for the first time. >> terrill swift: we all of us got one thing in common-- we did an extensive amount of time in jail for something we didn't do. and that's the bottom line. >> pitts: they each were sentenced to terms that ranged from 15 years to life. terrill swift, michael saunders, vincent thames, and harold richardson were convicted in one rape and murder; james harden, robert taylor and jonathan barr, in a different one. all were found guilty

the context of what turkey asked nato for, the patriot missile defense system, you have nato member countries who are now essentially saying through their partly i wants, yes, we are going to help you militarily defend yourself. the big question, however, is are other countries bringing up the possible threat of chemical weapons coming from syria as a way of laying the ground work for another kind of not intervention, but a assistance to rebel groups. you have a lot of strategic talk that's being publicly sort of expressed out there that could be laying the ground work for strategic help for rebel groups. also for russia and iran and china and other countries that support the assad regime to perhaps distance themselves a little bit from the syrian president. we have all those reasons that are coming -- that are like the pieces of the puzzle. you make it out. is the threat of chemical weapons being used against the syrians an imminent threat? you have a lot of opinions out there that that's not the case right now. >> good balanced approach. we like that. a lot of people just kind of beating th
